Launch Your Freelance Writing Career
get confident, get published, get paid.
Four years ago, between nursing a baby and chasing a toddler, I launched my freelance writing career.
I had NO experience.
I had NO degree.
I had NO confidence.
I had NO idea what I was doing.
Over the next four years, I made COUNTLESS mistakes and worked long, long hours trying to figure out this whole “freelance writing” thing. It was a struggle. But eventually I managed to land bylines in dozens of national publications, both online and print. To date, my work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Atlantic, Pacific Standard, Prevention, Men’s Health, Neurology Now, Discover, Salon, Slate, Redbook, Marie Claire, CNBC, and *tons* of others.
As of October 2018, I have made tens of thousands of dollars writing from my couch in my pajamas about anything and everything I want. With my writing income, I’ve been able to pay the bills, demolish my student loan debt, travel, and pay exorbitant medical bills with the flick of my debit card. Knowing I’ve done all that — and I figured it out by myself, from scratch — is an AMAZING feeling. And I want to show you exactly how I did it (and how you can too).
In this course you’ll learn:
—> How to turn a story idea into a pitch
—> How to connect with editors and sell them your stories
—> How to get PAID HANDSOMELY for your writing
—> How to get editors to come TO YOU with assignments
—> How to take your doubt, fear, and lack of confidence and throw it in the garbage forever
This course is PERFECT for:
*Beginning writers who have NO IDEA where to start
*People who LOVE to write but think they can’t possibly make a living doing so (wrong)
*People who want to write, but don’t think anyone will pay them to write about things they want (wrong again)
*People who think you have to be hired by a magazine or an outlet in order to write for that outlet or make any real money (nope!)
*Writers who want to launch their career, but think they need a degree or years of experience to do so (LIES!)
*Writers with some experience, but think there’s NO WAY they can break into mainstream, national, or print publications (LIES FROM THE DEVIL!)
Everything I’ve learned from freelance writing in the past four years is HERE, in this course. And if you do the work and learn from my mistakes, you can launch your VERY OWN freelance career too — on YOUR terms.
Let’s get started!
